Is Hayden Panettiere engaged to Wladimir Klitschko?
Is Hayden Panettiere engaged? Rumors are starting to circulate as she and boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko spent some quality time together in Miami over the weekend.
The entertainment magazine is saying that Panettiere has said "yes" to her boyfriend, Wladimir Klitschko. Klitschko is a Ukranian heavyweight professional boxer whose list of accomplishments includes a gold medal from the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia.
The couple make a striking pair given their height difference. The actress stands at a petite 5 foot, 2 inches, while the athlete clocks in at 6 feet, 6 inches.
The duo originally dated for two years but split in May 2011. Their romance ignited again in January, so this would be a quick turn of events if the engagement news is true.
A source told US Weekly, "Looks like a summer wedding!"
As for the ring? The source also reported that it exists, but "very few people know, and she isn't wearing her ring publicly yet."
While all of that news is unconfirmed by the two, what is known is that they spent some quality time together over the holiday weekend. Panettiere was spotted sporting a fuchsia bikini in Miami.
The former Heroes star is well-known for her love of athletes, having also dated NFL player Scotty McKnight. However, she swears that she likes actors, too. Her ex-boyfriends include Milo Ventimiglia and One Tree Hill's Stephen Colletti.
She told US Weekly back in 2011, "See, I date two athletes and then people assume I only like athletes, but if I dated all actors, people wouldn't say anything. But I like [romancing athletes]. It's been a really cool thing because they're in similar circles, where they understand the schedule, the work ethic, the social aspect, but they're not exactly in your industry, so it works out well."
If the engagement rumors turn out to be true, then it sounds like the athlete-actor pairing is a match made in heaven for Panettiere.
